The Fight for Life Continuum Partners with StoreMyTumor in Creating the Personalized Cancer Care Initiative (PCCI)

Orlando, FL - The Joan L. Kidd MD Fight for Life Continuum announced today the creation of the Personalized Cancer Care Initiative (PCCI) in partnership with StoreMyTumor. The PCCI was formed in order to empower cancer patients to “own” their cancer care, and to raise awareness concerning the importance of personalized treatments and educating patients about the critical role of the patient’s own tumor for personalizing treatment options. The PCCI will be driven by current knowledgeable and experienced cancer survivors (Patient Advocates) that have experienced the limitations of the standard of care at first hand, have learned that there are no silver bullets to curing cancer, and that to stay ahead, every option matters. The Patient Advocates main mission is to raise awareness and ensure that all patients have the most comprehensive information about personalized treatments and advanced diagnostics available, to make the best decisions for them and their families.
